Education Minister Lou Hyndman said his department has been under � considerable pressure to discontinue the exams but "there will be no significant change in the present system during this school year." He said while there has been a growing demand for an end to departmental examinations in Grade 12, the body of opinion is not unanimous. Many feel they are objective and eliminate the possibility of bias due to a poor student-teacher relationship. However, with teachers becoming b e 11 e r-educated and the emphasis leaning towards acquiring abilties that are not easily evaluated by one year-end exam, the value of departmental exams is being questioned. Mr. Hyndman said while the outcome of the review of the situation cannot be predicted, possibilities range all the way to complete accreditation off all high schools in the province.

In an interview Thursday, Mr. Olson said the grain industry in particular "receives huge amounts" of f e d e ral money. There is more help for the grain industry than to the rest of agriculture, he said. Grain accounts for only 25 per cent of the agriculture industry. Payments to agriculture out of the federal treasury, including the wheat account; payments through the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act; the Lift program; and cash advances for farm - stored grain are as much as is spent on other sectors of the economy, he said. He said some of the dairy subsidy is spent in the west, and Lethbridge has the major research station in Canada outside the main station in Ottawa. Fifty per cent of the sugar beet subsidy money is spent in Alberta and 90 per cent in Western Canada.

He said there is also another series of subsudies for agricul- ture only. He mentioned the turkey and potato purchase programs and subsidies to the blueberry and apple industry. He said hogs would fall under similar categories in the near future. Mr. Olson will address the Taber - Barnwell Sugar Beet Growers' Association annual banquet tonight. He will speak briefly on the new government plan to assist small farm development. City industry is growing at expense of rural areas By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer The industrial might, of large cities will continue to grow at the expense of less - populated and developed areas, says an urban planning specialist. David Bettison, a University of Lethbridge professor of sociology says the federal government's program to distribute industry, away from highly-developed urban areas to poorer areas in Canada, is failing. He was speaking to the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. The effort to decentralize industry through the department of regional economic expansion is failing because of its poor accomplish m e n t record, he said. About $330 million spent by DREE in a nation - wide belt where one - third of the population lives, has not created the jobs amd job distribution expected. Companies are still concentrating on developed areas because of the responsibility they have to their stock holders, he explained. As a result they invest in areas where profits are assured -large, already industrialized cities. The three - year - old DREE is unabie to control centralization of industry, he said. The failure to distribute industrial growth more evenly results from historic events dating back more than 30 years. The problem: is that the federal government provides the financing, but the development powers lie in the hands of the provincial' government, Prof. Bettison said. However, because of historic events, both cities and financiers hold the power reigns to development. by SUNDAY IS FAMILY DAY at...

He said, an example of the power cities have is the demand by the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities to sit in and vote at constitutional meetings between the federal and provincial governments. The power of the provinces has also been decreased by an increasing linkage between the federal government and cities. Prof. Bettison added, the lack of faculties in smaller or undeveloped areas where long-term planning loans for public services leading to investment security are difficult to obtain. Milk, cream meetings Saturday Producer meetings to dis cuss the dairy industry and the proposed milk market sharing plan will be held in the Civic Centre on Saturday. Cream producers will meet at 1:30 p.m. amd fluid milk pro ducers will meet at 8 p.m. The meetings are designed to inform producers of the ramifications of the plan proposed by the Committee on Milk Market - sharing before the producer plebiscite on whether to implement the plan. A similar meeting will be held in Pincher Creek tonight at 8 o'clock.

The trend towards urban centralization is not irreversible, he said. Limits for city expansion must be set, although they are unlikely because of current business attitudes. He said cities are suffering from their rapid expansion. Not enough recreational facilities are available to meet demands. Recreation to city dwellers usually means travelling into the country. However, Prof. Bettison warned that recreational facilities may not be the answer to a city dweller's personal problems but the reduction of personal debt which was recorded at $500 per capita five years ago could be. This figure did not include such things as mortgages, but only personal expenditure debts. This Indebtedness can be attributed to the climbing criminality rate and other problems encountered in large cities, he said. The reason people put up with this type of life is that man adjusts to any environ ment quickly, he said, and learns to live with a situation What is required is a more concerted effort for decentralization - by the provincial government - to spread industry and re - introduce personal contact. By RIC SWIHART ] Staff Writer Exclamations of approval, astonishment and "w h a t's next" were everywhere as cattlemen and interested people from across Western Canada caught their first glimpse of the world's largest cattle-Chianina. The Lethbridge R e search Station held open house for North America's first imported Italian - bred Chianina cattle Thursday, showing 10 of the 28 animals in Canada. The animals arrived at the research station Sept. 9 and remained in quarantine until Nov. 29. In total, they spent more than one year in quarantine in Canada. The breed was brought to Canada to provide additional genetic material for crossbreeding with domestic cattle including Herefords, Aberdeen-Angus and shorthorns. Dr. Syd Slen, head of the animal science section at the reseach station, said the animals, four bulls and six heifers, will be used for scientific research, primarily as a terminal sire in a three-breed crossing program. This means the Chianina will be used mostly as a mate for an animal which is the result of one crossbreeding. Federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson was impressed with the condition of the animals. "You could see their ribs when they first came to Oanada," he said. He noticed that the hair on all the animals was responding to the climate, considering they were being fed a 50 per cent hay ration. Lee Stanford, co - owner of Economy Feeds Ltd., said the animals appeared better than he thought they would. He said they recorded a high conversion rate for feedlot ration and said they would be good animals for feeding in a custom feed lot. E. R. Cyr of Pincher Creek said he was highly impressed with the breed. "I think the cattle have had a rough time in quarantine and even so, their rate of gain is better than I have seen," he said. W. M. Norris of Warner said Pharmacy Facts from O. C. STUBBS Recently, we've had to refuse to refill some prescriptions friends and customers have brought to us. While we appreciate their coming to us, we are controlled by the fact that many of the prescriptions your doctor writes require his continued authorization each time we refill them for you. And, we are now operating under the new "Drug Abuse Law" which prohibits the refilling of certain prescriptions after a definite period of time without further authorization from your doctor. These rules and laws are in effect for your protection and good health. We deeply appreciate your bringing your prescriptions to us, but we have to take both care and caution with the refiling of them. Friendly, appreciative service? You can always be sure of it here at your friendly pharmacy (Stubbs, of course). We're always glad to see and be of service to you here at 1506 9th Ave. S.

Charlie McKinnon of Calgary and M. A. Valli of Brooks, members of the provincial advisory committee to research stations, said these particular animals are favorable for their breed. They both agreed Chianina is a terrific breed of cattle but said only time will tell whether they will be successful in Canada. They suggested the Chianina will be a part of the increasing cross breeding program being promoted across Canada. Leonard Halmrast, former provincial minister of agriculture, said the Chianina will provide cattlemen with a vchance to produce more weight on calves and beef cattle per animal. He said the aim of producers in going to larger animals is strictly economically - oriented: "It costs very little more to raise a large animal." Mr. Halmrast pointed to the fine head of the Chianiina which in his opinion will reduce calving problems common to other exotic breeds like charolais. The bulls on display were 19 months old and the heaviest weighed 1,700 pounds. A full grown bull will weigh up to 4,000 pounds. A mature female will weight 2,400 pounds.
